Modest Mouse

Modest Mouse is a great band. I know that I'm not the only one on this forum who enjoys their music and respects the band as musicians. Being that I love Modest Mouse and I haven't seen any other threads dedicated to only MODEST MOUSE, I decided to start one myself.

Below you will find the very best albums they've put out over the span of their career.

The Essential Modest Mouse Listenings:

-The Lonesome Crowded West-
-The Moon and Antarctica-
-Building Nothing Out of Something-
-This is a Long Drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About-

For those of you not familiar with Modest Mouse and are looking to hear some of their material, I have comprised a list of good songs for you to check out.

The Essential Modest Mouse Songs:
Never Ending Math Equation
Dramamine
Dog Paddle
Teeth Like God's Shoeshine
Convinient Parking
Perfect Desguise
Sh*t Luck
Dark Center of the Universe
Beach Side Property
3rd Planet
Polar Opposites
Out of Gas
Truckers Atlas
Bankrupt on Selling
Exit Does Not Exist


*Note: I am currently working on a very extensive history of the band that will be added within a few days. Until then feel free to post of more suggestions on SONGS and ALBUMS.

because it's their most popular and launched the band all over mtv. what kind of hardcore modest mouse fan would anyone be if they admitted that it really is pretty good?
